Dit is die laat tagtigerjare. Ernstige aantygings teen drie prominente NP-ministers doen die ronde. Een van die drie is, naas die staatshoof, die magtigste man in Suid-Afrika.
'n Waagmoedige polisieman en 'n vreeslose joernalis ondersoek die gerugte dat jong seuns op 'n eiland aan die kus van Port Elizabeth misbruik word. Mark Minnie en Chris Steyn kom onafhanklik van mekaar af op dieselfde donker geheim. Maar die saak kry net kortstondig aandag voordat dit doodgesmoor word en verdwyn.
Dertig jaar later sit Steyn en Minnie hul bewyse bymekaar en lig die sluier oor dié skokkende gebeure - 'n verhaal van misdaad, toesmeerdery en amptelike medepligtigheid in die verkragting, en moontlik selfs moord, van weerlose kinders.

OOR DIE OUTEURS
MARK MINNIE is 'n voormalige polisieman wat in die 1980's by die Suid-Afrikaanse Polisie (SAP) se Narkotikaburo as speurder gewerk het. Sedert hy Suid-Afrika in 2007 verlaat het, het hy 'n CELTA-onderwyssertifikaat deur die Universiteit van Cambridge in Londen verwerf. Daarna het hy vir die Universiteit van Cambridge en die British Council in China as Engelse eksaminator gewerk. Tans werk hy as 'n Engelsonderwyser by die Universiteit van Guangzhou in China.
Mark Minnie se liggaam is in Port Elizabeth gevind op 14 Augustus 2018, 'n week nadat die boek vrygestel is.

CHRIS STEYN is 'n ondersoekende skrywer en joernalis. Sy het oor die jare vir die Rand Daily Mail, The Star en die Cape Times gewerk. Sy was redakteur van die ondersoekende joernalistiekspan van sestien koerante in die Independent Newspapers-groep. Nadat sy geweier het om teen een van haar bronne te getuig, is sy noodgedwonge in ballingskap om gevangenisstraf in Suid-Afrika vry te spring. Terug in Suid-Afrika is sy in hegtenis geneem en aangekla omdat sy protes aangeteken het teen 'n apartheidsproklamasie wat media-vryheid drasties ingeperk het. Sy is die trotse mede-eienaar en bestuurder van 'n boekwinkel op die kusdorp waar sy tans woon.

It is the late 1980s. Serious allegations surface against three prominent National Party cabinet ministers, one of them the second-most powerful man in the land. They are, it is said, regularly abusing young boys on an island just off the coast of Port Elizabeth.
From opposite ends of South Africa, a brave cop and a driven journalist investigate. Mark Minnie and Chris Steyn independently uncover evidence of a dark secret. But the case only surfaces briefly before it disappears completely.
Thirty years later, the two finally connect the dots to expose this shocking story of criminality, cover-ups and official complicity in the rape and possible murder of children, most of them vulnerable and black.

ABOUT THE AUTHORS
MARK MINNIE is a former cop who worked as a Narcotics Bureau officer for the South African Police during the 1980s. He left South Africa for England in 2007, and acquired a CELTA qualification for teaching English as a foreign language through Cambridge University in London. Shortly thereafter he began working as an English examiner for Cambridge University and the British Council in China. Tragically, Mark was found dead on Tuesday 14 August 2018 (1 week after the release of the book) in Port Elizabeth.

CHRIS STEYN is a writer and former journalist. Over the years she has worked for the Rand Daily Mail, The Star and the Cape Times. In 1986 she went into exile to avoid imprisonment for refusing to testify against a source. When she returned to South Africa, she was arrested and tried for protesting against an apartheid government proclamation that drastically curtailed press freedom. Chris later became editor of the investigative unit of the Independent Newspapers group. She is the proud co-owner of a bookshop in the seaside village she now calls home.
